© Universidad de Salamanca. We introduce here a new quantification proposal in protohistoric and classical pottery studies. The proposal also includes the way of representation of such analytics with the aim of making homogeneous diagnostic, analysis and publication models of any kind of ceramic material disregarding their nature. Therefore, it can be useful for either stratigraphy assemblages or particular series. This standard attempts to improve data interconnection between different areas, between different sites, so more solid and comparable values will be obtained at territorial level. At least, much better than the ones employed nowadays. Finally, using certain conventions in the pottery analysis will help us to build a high rank interpretative system, which may include aspects of commercial, social, cultural and, even, symbolic character.
